For MTV's upcoming Video Music Awards, I was asked to do a portrait of Carly Rae Jepsen. If you don't already have "Call Me Maybe" in your head, you are welcome. Thanks to Tamar Anitai for the commission, I was so stoked to do this.
I also gave a brief interview along with the painting, here's an excerpt:
"I love the way this song truly embodies summer. It's in the same category for me as 'Feel Me Flow' by Naughty by Nature, which I remember watching on MTV growing up and thinking 'damn, I want my summer to go like this.' I think we've all been in that position where we do silly things to attract our crush, (this video certainly makes me want to do more sit-ups so that I can attract my hot, car-washing neighbor), and I wanted to capture that aspect of summer with this painting."
